Re: Spam, Spam and more spam
I must be overworked or hallucinating. Signups are disabled, wp-signup was deleted some time ago, and they are still creating new accounts and blogs as we speak! How is this possible? For a while I kept entering the ip s in wp-ban and had given up on that plugin, but I noticed it caught about 600 attempts in the last 24 hrs. Still, a few dozen got through anyway.
The only other way I can think of is that a member is “inviting” them via the “Allow blog administrators to add new users to their blog via the Users->Add New page.” on the WPMU options page, so I’m going to disable that as well now.
We’re still a relatively small and young community and all these restrictions and jumping through hoops is hurting us.
